    Default Liefeld loses rights to youngblood

    Apparently, Rob Liefeld loses the rights to his flagship characters and will apparently be adopted to a new company pretty much adding the final nail in the coffin for the Image Superhero Universe. Here's the whole story.

    Sounds incredible, but that‘s the business world.

    That's too bad. But honestly the readership has moved past YB. The Bowers book despite being good only made it to 11 issues.

    Oh, Rob.

    I liked the most recent Youngblood, too. I was jazzed that #1 referenced Judgement Day, and it looked like we were going to get a story somewhere along the line tying into it. But then, yeah. Series ended abruptly.

    Does he still own Supreme? Give us more Supreme.

    So basically Scott Rosenberg stole the rights from under him? That sounds like fraud, because Liefeld never signed away the rights.

    Well, Liefeld 'sold' the rights when he did the deal to bring in two partners.

    The same with Supreme, sadly.

    To me/for me, I really haven't really liked Youngblood as much as I did back during vol #1 up through the Prophet and Supreme premieres. I haven't really cared for any of the reboots at all. While it sucks that Rob lost the rights of something he created, that's a story as old as comics themselves, IF Rosenberg could go back to that original version of the characters, a good writer and a very good writer I might get interested in the property again.

    Agreed. Creatively speaking, the first volume had a strong start because of the original cast of characters.

    Agreed. Although, the downside would be the loss of Liefeld's enthusiastic artwork.
